Starter(s): Colston Loveland and A.J. Barner
This is another position that will be tough to call in fall camp. Colston Loveland is likely going to play the most snaps this season and former Michigan football tight end Jake Butt said that Loveland could be the best to ever play the position for Michigan.
The way Loveland closed the season — with catches of 20 yards or more against Illinois, Ohio State, and Purdue in the Big Ten title game, he showed he’s ready for primetime.
Michigan football is known for its running back tandem, but the tight-end duo is also one of the best in college football.
Backups: Matthew Hibner, Zach Marshall, Deakon Tonielli, Marlin Klein and Max Bredeson.
The Wolverines are pretty deep at tight end too. Hibner had an impressive spring. We’ve heard good things about the freshman and Bredeson is tough as nails. Michigan football loves to throw to tight ends but it also loves to use them in the running game so expect lots of tight ends to get snaps for Michigan football in 2023.
